Seahawks and 9ers injury reports for Wednesday

    For the 9ers, it's almost sounding like Justin Smith won't play. A lot of guys didn't participate for them.

    San Francisco 49ers: Defensive end Justin Smith (elbow) and outside linebacker Clark Haggans (shoulder) did not practice. Outside linebacker Ahmad Brooks (shoulder), cornerback Tarell Brown (shoulder), linebacker Tavares Gooden (ribs), receiver Mario Manningham (shoulder), running back Bruce Miller (shoulder), linebacker Aldon Smith (shoulder) and defensive lineman Will Tukuafu (concussion) did not practice Wednesday. Smith's status is a key variable given his 185-game starting streak and the 49ers' injury situation at the position. Other teams running 3-4 defenses tend to carry six or seven linemen on their 53-man rosters. The 49ers had greater flexibility when Tukuafu was healthy and before tight end Demarcus Dobbs, a former defensive lineman, landed on injured reserve. I found it telling that Smith returned to the game against New England for one play before departing. He's as tough and durable as they come. Kicker David Akers (pelvis), guard Alex Boone (knee), linebacker NaVorro Bowman (shoulder), running back Frank Gore (wrist), guard Mike Iupati (shoulder), cornerback Carlos Rogers (knee) and linebacker Patrick Willis (shoulder) were full participants.

    And for the Seahawks, it doesn't sound all too great, but it's still early in the week. Would love it if Thurmond could get over that hamstring.

    Seattle Seahawks: Defensive tackle Alan Branch (ankle), defensive end Jason Jones (knee), running back Leon Washington (illness), receiver Sidney Rice (knee), cornerback Walter Thurmond (hamstring) and cornerback Marcus Trufant (hamstring) did not practice. Running back Marshawn Lynch (back) was limited. The already diminished depth at cornerback would become a bigger issue if the NFL were to suspend starter Richard Sherman following his hearing Friday regarding a four-game suspension for using performance-enhancing drugs. The league generally announces suspensions early enough in the week for teams to adjust their rosters in time for practices, however.

  • i wouldn't believe a word of the injury report from either camp. not in this game. pete tends to get even more "physc out mode" than usual when it gets to these tight division games (remember him not saying if charlie or hass would play against the rams for the playoff game until right before kick off?).

    - i think jsmith will be a last minute go but will play poorly as a result.

    - thurmond will not go, this will be a good thing becuase although needed if he tries to force it and injures himself worst (perfectly reasonable thought since its wt3) that could kill us in the rams game which would be the must win-must win if it goes bad sunday.

    - Sid sounds like he is going through the usual wear and tear of being an nfl reciever in a physical, block heavy scheme. he'll go.

    - lynch is to angry for pain. he'll go.

    - i could see that entire 9ers list and everyone save for branch and trufant playing this game.
